Yay! Another parking lot down (hopefully) and one in the southern part of the Loop this time.

Dorm developer doubles down in East Loop

(Crain’s) — The owner of a new 456-bed dormitory in the East Loop wants to pack another 1,221 students into a planned 37-story high-rise next door.

A joint venture including Chicago-based real estate investment firms L&H Real Estate Group and Brownstone Realty & Development Co. has asked the city to approve a zoning change that would allow the new dorm at 51-67 E. Van Buren St. The tower would connect with the Buckingham, a 27-story former office building immediately to the east that the same developers converted into student housing last year.

The new project is a bold bet that rising enrollments at downtown colleges will continue to spur demand for student housing, despite the darkening economy. Student housing is considered a recession-resistant property sector, driven more by demographics — as the so-called echo boom generation reaches college age — than by economic cycles.

Yay for more educational building in Chicago!

Thanks for grabbing some shots of this one. I had almost completely forgotten about it. From some of those angles it doesn't look like the giant piece of dog crap that the renders had me anticipating.

Well, yes, that's true. But in that last straight-up-the-center shot (NICE btw) it still bears an uncanny resemblance to a Robt. Taylor Homes tower (yikes!) but with a 100-times-better facade and cladding.

It's okay. They should have mirrored the west crown with the east. The west side makes the building really look flat.

Precisely what I thought when I saw those. Ouch.

And yet, I like this far better than the east side, with its stupid Cyclops ornament on top.

I wish! SusieM was kind enough to invite me up to check out the spectacular views she’ll be enjoying. She is just starting to move in after recently closing on the condo. SusieM also gave me a tour of OMPE and I was very impressed. I took over a hundred pictures from her balcony, hoping a few would turn out, and I still need to go through them and pick out the best ones. I'm planning to create a separate thread in the city photography section.
